Letter: Boots staff get fit for charity

Re Nostalgia picture (Scarborough News, July 20):

Your Say
The public and their elected representatives must be informed of any plans and be allowed to respond accordingly.

Letter: Public must be kept informed

Many will have been relieved at the proposed timetable by Northern Rail which would have seen many of their services from May 2018 services not stopping at Hunmanby. Campaigners such as Nick Harvey and indeed our MP Kevin Hollinrake who responded at short notice deserve congratulations. While the change of mind by Northern Rail is welcome, serious questions remain about the way the consultation on the proposed timetable was carried out.

Your Say
Thanks to all involved.

Letter: Thanks and here’s to next year’s Seafest

This year’s 19th Seafest Festival of the Sea was staged within Scarborough Harbour and included seafood cooking, maritime exhibitions, music, real ale, visiting vessels etc and brought together the RNLI Flag Weekend, Sea Cadets, Coastguards, fishing organisations and trusts. Whilst bearing in mind commercially we try not to clash with other traders of the area, we as a group have to be self-funding and rely totally on sponsorship/exhibitors’ fees but continue to link with the sea, both past and present.

Your Say
Toilet facilities shut in the summer season.

Letter: Dismay at no facilities

One might credibly assume that the council of a prime tourist town in a county with the highest proportion of over 60s, would carefully consider the needs of those sectors.

Your Say
Disgusted by the state of the toilets next to Olympia Leisure amusements.

Letter: Disgrace of public loos and at 40p charge

As a tourist visiting Scarborough, I was disgusted by the state of the toilets next to Olympia Leisure amusements.

Your Say
Why has bagged rubbish not been collected?

Letter: Bagged refuse left 15 days for gulls and foxes

Re Cayton Low Road Industrial Estate and the travellers:

Your Say
Do we need reminding?

Letter: A gentle reminder for us all?

There are now three new funeral parlours at Ramshill (plus three more new ones in other areas of Scarborough).

Introduce on the spot fines for feeding seagulls.

Letter: Serve up on the spot fines for feeding gulls

Re D Jeffcock’s letter:

Improved train service is great news.

Letter: New rail services for Bempton and Hunmanby

It is great news for the villages of Bempton and Hunmanby as the new improved regular hourly train service on the Yorkshire Wolds Coast Railway will see all trains now call at these local stations, Bempton famous for its premier bird nesting colony, and Hunmanby as Yorkshire’s largest village with a large industrial estate close to the station.

Call to support initiative.

Letter: Action group’s call for support with initiative

Scarborough Disability Action Group is pleased to be working with Febreze on a new recycling fundraising initiative to enable previously non-recyclable air and home care products and packaging recyclable, while supporting good causes at the same time. From July 10 to August 31 pieces of air and home care waste are rewarded with double points during the contest period, meaning that each piece will be rewarded double points.

Anti-fracking campaign could destroy farming communities and way of life.

Letter: Campaign could damage farming life

Should the anti-fracking community be allowed to continue such appalling use of disinformation without repercussions?

A lot of people rely on this service.

Letter: Loss of train service would isolate Hunmanby

Re Hunmanby services: The trains are already few and far between.

Pain and time means nothing to pen pushers.

Letter: Painful journey could have been avoided

I was under the impression that hospitals were provided to ease pain an stress, not cause it.

Appeal for information on missing steam trawler, Doris Burton.

Letter: Researching the missing steam trawler Doris Burton

I have been doing lots of research on the missing steam trawler, Doris Burton, that sadly went missing in the North Sea in 1914.

Olly Murs on stage at the Open Air Theatre.

Letter: A pleasant evening with Olly Murs

We went to the Open Air Theatre in Scarborough to see Olly Murs - we were pleasantly surprised to see how many fans turned up all ages but to be fair mainly youngsters with the mums to see Olly.

We need to know MP's views on a number of environmental issues.

Letters: Will MP tackle air pollution?

Filey and Malton MP Kevin Hollinrake’s reaction to his appointment at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs raises questions. While farming, food and fishing are indeed important to the area, he made not a mention of the big E, which is the first word in his department’s title!

Fracking is a major subject that will affect many Yorkshire towns and villages.

Letter: A clear stand on fracking

As days go by I am getting more and more concerned over the state of the fracking industry. The people of Yorkshire do not want fracking not only on our doorstep but in our fields.

Fracking will become a massive problem if it is allowed to go ahead.

Letter: Concerns over potential fracking risks

Re letter in The Scarborough News, Thursday, July 6:

Now is the time for Ryedale to stand alongside our local MP.

Letter: Community could benefit from fracking industry

I am writing in my capacity as a small operator of a tourism business interest in Ryedale in North Yorkshire.
